Crispy Oven Wings

I love some light and crispy spicy chicken wings - and the best part is these are crispy "oven" wings that are baked (not fried). These are such a hit at family functions, and hot summers days, not to mention the sport events that occur and the celebrations after. I found the best way to prepare the wings after you wash them is to dry the wings (with a paper towel) then, mix the wings with about a cup of flour and a tablespoon of baking powder, until they’re evenly coated with a light dusting, drizzle them with olive oil... then they are ready to bake. You need to bake them for about 40 mins until they are golden and crisp at around 450 degrees. Check them once and lightly drizzle with a bit more olive oil and turn them over on the baking sheet if they are not looking browned. The wings are not fried, but they get this light crispy texture and after perfect to dip in ranch dressing or hot sauce. Once both sides are evenly crispy they are ready to be taken out and enjoyed.

This is a recipe that you will impress your friends and family with, after you try it once, you may want to invite someone over for dinner and impress them with your culinary skills! They will be thanking you forever, and possibly coming over for dinner on a regular basis. You want to cook these on a rack over a pan so the grease can drip down and get these wings nice and crispy, that is the whole appeal to these delectable little things, isn't it? You will barely be able to wait to eat these things!

Another favorite with these wings is dipping sauces such as Buffalo wing spicy, Salsa mild, Asian Teriyaki and Creamy Parmesan Ranch. These easy to make dipping sauces are always a hit with friends and family. When you cut up some fresh vegetables like carrots and celery, these are the perfect accompaniment to the light and irresistibly crispy chicken wings mentioned above and when served with some fresh beers on a hot summers day, well they will still be talking about the meal when they return to the office. Your mouth is going to water just looking at the photos on the site, wait till you try it!
